Community Highlights: Meet Ashley Hunt-Poole of Mocktails for Mommy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Hunt-Poole.

Hi Ashley, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Mocktails For Mommy was created during the height of the pandemic to provide a safe and more health-conscious way to enjoy a cocktail but without the harsh effects of alcohol, especially for pregnant and breastfeeding moms.

I was pregnant with my daughter at the time and I wanted to drink (of course, I couldn’t). So I decided to create my own version of cocktail drinks but without the alcohol. Through my own recipes family, friends, and word of mouth Mocktails for Mommy took off.

I started receiving orders -people wanted and needed mocktails for mommy.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has definitely been a struggle as I further my brand from its humble beginnings of just creating my own Mocktail recipes often I find myself struggling with my brand and its probability of success, becoming a household name.

Sometimes I question myself will people accept the brand for what it is?

As Mocktails For Mommy has grown we have run into challenges of being able to find a co-packer and to be able to get into retail stores and so it’s a struggle and it’s an everyday struggle but little by little we are getting to where we need to be.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Mocktails for Mommy?
Mocktails For Mommy has made its way to the hearts of many across the southern states but it’s time to take Mocktails For Mommy to the next level becoming a household name.

Mocktails For Mommy is not just a business but it is tied to the community and giving back having a nonprofit component that provides scholarships and resources to low-income families. Every time someone purchases a drink from Mocktails For Mommy they are supporting their community.

Mocktails for Mommy has a passion for others and giving back. We pride ourselves in providing quality drinks that are delicious and refreshing!

What has been the most important lesson you’ve learned along your journey?
The most important lesson that I’ve learned along this journey is understanding and excepting what I’m trying to do not only for myself but for others.

When you have a brand that you see where it can go people try to steer you from the path that is paved for you and this is a lesson that I’m learning. Another lesson that I’ve learned is to not accept the word NO eventually somebody is going to tell you yes and support you and help you to get to where you’re trying to go in life.

If I would’ve stopped when somebody told me No and that Mocktails For Mommy was not going to be successful then I wouldn’t be where I am today so never accept the word NO keep pushing and go forward!
